HE CITED OTTUMWA
Dr. Hinitt Talks to Keokuk People
on Temperance.
VIEWED FROM ECONOMY'S STANDPOINT
Took the Situation in Ottumwa as an
Example—Showed That Saloon Is
Expensive to Taxpayers—Present
ed a Strong Argument.
Keokulc, Jan. 22.—Rev. Dr. P. W.
Hinitt, president of Parson's college,
Fairfield, delivered a lecture at tile
Firet Westminster Presbyterian
church at 3 o'clock on Sunday after
noon on "Temperance." This lecture
has been delivered heretofore in vari
ous localities by Dr. Hinitt and has al
ready won for him a host of admirers
among temperance workers.
Dr. Hinitt does not appeal to one
as a powerful orator, depending on
flasfiing sentiment, or by displaying
impulses of magnetic influences, nor
does he droll away the time exhibit
ing enormous "sums expended for
beer" and the like, and then complete
one's exhaustion by an astonishing
array of figures to show you that this
many men, approximately speaking,
bad apparently died within the last
Biz
months from drunkenness.
He puts it altogether on a basis of
economics, deals with local facts,holds
tip' before the audience only such
things as they know or can investigate
and stands before them in the light of
a practical educator, domineered by a
F.turdy and rugged character, and an
intellect that probes into the nature
and history of thingE with the aim of
telling it for the benefit of mankind.
In Ottumwa.
He took as an illustration the city of
Ottumwa and started by repeating the
arguments, used by friends of the sa
loon, that is that the city received li
cense money from the saloon and that
nn uncertain amount of patronage was
brought to a city because of saloons.
This the speaker admitted. He as
sumed the burden of showing the fal
lacy of this argument by demonstrat
ing corresponding losses to the city.
tThe
twenty-two saloons of Ottumwa
.jiaid in 18S4 $1,800 er.eh as license
money $39,600 in all. Six hundred
€nd sixty dollars of this went to the
/county, leaving about $39,000 for the
city. This was the extent of the city's
income therefrom.
But, Dr. Hinitt said, the criminal
business was more expensive, insani
ty increased, tramps multiplied and
paupers increased to more than take
iUp this amount. The costs of criminal
business in one court there was over
$6,000. One justice of the peace alone
earned $1,500. Other items were num
erated but these two will suffice to
convey his meaning.

PERSONALS.
Mrs. E. P. Green has recovered from
tin
attack of the grip at Canaseraga,
N. Y., by the use of Dr. Miles' Pain
Among the victims of the grip epi
demic now so prevalent, P. Coyle is
recovering at Canton, O., by the
iftftiseof Dr. Miles' Nervine and Pills.
W. E. Nihells, of St. Louis, Mo., who
was down with grip, is reported much
.improved. He used Dr. Miles' Nervine
and Pills.
The friends of Mrs. L. Denison will
be pleased to learn of her recovery
from grip, at her home in Bay City,
Mich., thru the use of Dr. Miles' Nerv
ine and Pills.
Everybody says that J. W. TJdy is
looking splendid since his recovery
from the grip at his home in Des
Moines, Iowa. They all know that Dr,
Miles' Nervine and Pills was what
cured him.
Prosecuting Attorney Charles L. De
Waele, who has passed the three-score
mile stone, had a time with the grip
but when seen at his home in Ros
common, Mich., the other day, he said
Dr. Miles Nervine was what cured
him.
'At nearly three score and ten Mrs.
Galen Humphrey was, fighting against
odds when, the grip attacked her but
she took Dr. Miles' Nervine, and now
jher neighbors in Wareham, Mass., re
mark on how well she is looking.
After an Illness of five weeks from
./the grip, Mrs. Harriett Jackson is
again about and looking fine. She be
gan taking Dr. Miles' Nervine after
the fourth week. Her home is in
Bowling Green, Mo.
This great Kidney and
luiver Specific relies
•upon, the verdict of the
world after 21 years
trial.
Two years later, without saloons,the
costs in the same court were down to
about $2,700, while the justice of the
peace was practically without busi
ness. In this line the statistics were
multiplied to take away the greater
part of the $39,000 received in taxes.
Another Tack.
Then he illustrated by taking one
salcon paying a license, of $1,S00 per
year, rent $500 par year., help $1,000
per year, inciidetnals $400 per year,
the United States $240 per year, and
reserving $1,200 as profits, in all a lit
tle over $5,000. To get this much
above cost he must sell about $9,000
of liquor: twenty-two saloons would
sell about $200,000 in all. Accordingly,
there would be paid out about. $97,000
lor liquor that is, invested in liquor,
which was consumed and disappeared.
Assuming that the remaining $103,fr00
went into useful lines of trade, this
$97,000 sent away from the city
brought back no taxable property in
return, brought no necessities to the
people nor added any comforts.
If the same money were invested in
lumber or something of continuing
value and added to the city's wealth
and could be assessed and taxed as
other property is, this with the money
saved to the city otherwise, the bene
fits derived from the use of the prop
erty and other benefits would more
than pay the license received from the
saloons, according to the figures of Dr.
Hinitt.
There was again a moral worth in a
city or community to1 be considered.
Liquor never brings comfort to society
but is always a burden and often a
menace, it is said, and cited the recent
murder trial in New Jersey. Again,
all great lines of industry—labor hir
ing concerns—bar from their employ
ment all persons who drink. Bond
companies will not become responsi
ble for employes who drink. Men even
engaged in the liquor business will
employ nothing but sober men.
DEATH OF R. B. BURNS.
Occurred Yesterday Afternoon at Lit
tle Rock, Arkansas.
From Tuesday's Daily.
Late yesterday afternoon, a tele
gram was received in this city an
nouncing the death, at Little Rock,
Ark., of R. B. Burns, well known in
Ottumwa, and until recently a resi
dent of this city. Mr. Burns was the
father of Mrs. J. J. Baker, of South
Ottumwa, and left this city for Little
Rock only a few weeks ago. He was
eighty years of age, but on leaving
Ottumwa was in fairly good health.
After going to Arkansas, however, he
began to fail, and his illness was aid
ed by an affection of the heart from
which he had suffered for some time.
Mr. Burns was an old resident of
this part of the state. He came from
Indiana to Iowa in 1869 and lived in
Chariton until about four years ago,
when he removed to this city. In
Chariton he conducted a hotel near
the depot for several years, and wag
well known to every resident of that
place. His son, D. E. Burns, was for
several years a dispatcher on the Bur
lington in this city, and is now engag
er in the newspaper business in Lit
tle Rock. It was for the purpose of
being with his son that the old gen
tleman, accompanied by his daughter,
Miss Elizabeth Burns, went to Arkan
sas recently.
LUNCH IS PROHIBITED.
Supreme Court Rules on Provisions
of the Mulct Law.
Des Moines, Jan. 22.—Saloon keep
ers in Iowa, relying on the protection
of the mulct law against punishment
under the prohibitory liquor law, were
notified by the supreme court Satur
day that they must not permit any
lunch room to run in connection with
the saloon or store beer in the cellar
which has no street entrance. Both
these things are violations of tho
mulct' law, the court says in a case
from Polk county, and deprive the sa
loonkeeper of the authority to sell li
quor which that law, when put in op
eration by the consent of the voters,
gives him. In this case the defend
ant, George Conradi, had been enjoin
ed in prohibition days from selling li
quor contrary to law in this judicial
district. The lower court dismissed a
petition to' enforce the injunction
against him now on the ground that he
was exempted from it by the mulct
law. The supreme court says he is
not obeying the mulct law for the rea
sons stated, and others, so he has no
right to sell liquor.-
"When the grip left me my nerves
and heart were badly affected but I
began taking Dr. Miles' Nervine and
Heart Cure and was soon all right."—

says
"The postal service of the United
States is strictly a business enterprise
having both earnings and expense,re
ceipts and disbursements. In this
feature it differs from other depart

TILE OTTUMWA OOUK1KR: THURSDAY, JANUARY-84, I^Ul.
TO CURE THE GRIP.
Advice of a Famous Physician
First and foremost, REST.
Take care of yourself. Your al
ready weakened nerves want rest,
and must have it. If the attack is se
vere, go to bed and remain there.
More fatalities result from neglcct of
this precaution than from any other
cause.
Eat sparingly. Your digestive or
gans are in no condition to take care
of large quantities of food.
Drink plenty of pure, cold water. It
allays the fever, stimulates the kid
neys to action and opens up the pores
of the skin. Keep the bowels open
with Dr. Miles Nerve and Liver Pills.
Take three doses of Dr. Miles' Ner
vine per day, and if you cannot sleep
take an extra dose at bed time. To
further control the fever, and to over
come the peculiar aches and pains of
grip, use Dr. Miles' Pain Pills. They
act quickly and effectually, and no
bad effects result from their use.
These remedies have been thoroly
tested more than a million times, and
their efficiency is thoroly established.
They never fail to give relief.
Dr. Miles' remedies can be found
at any drug store, and they are sold
on a positive guarantee that first bot
tle or package benefits or money re

doubled in all its ramifications, since
it is important that the income as
well as the outgo shall be carefully
audited and accurately recorded. Tha
fact disclosed in the following pages
that the grand aggregate of these re
ceipts and disbursements approximat
ed $715,000,000 for the year under re
view, which involved the handling by
employes of this bureau of 34,000,000
separate money vouchers, gives some
idea of the labor and responsibility in
volved.
"Failing to find relief from the grip
with old methods, I took Dr. Miles'
Pain Pills, Nervine and Nerve and
Liver Pills and was permanently
cured."—Gust. Egan, Jackson, Mich.
RELATIVES IN OTTUMWA.

day in Washington.
News has been received here of the
ueath of Mrs. Marion O'Laughlin, at

numerous relatives in Ottumwa who
will deeply mourn her departure. The
Washington Journal prints the follow
ing in regard to the death:
"After an illness of over two months
Mrs. Marion O'Laughlin. passed away
yesterday morning at 8:40 o'clock.
She was taken down with typhoid
fever and for several weeks was not
able to partake of solid food. An ab
cess which former on the right side
of her neck was a great drain on her
strong constitution. It had passed
away, but her system had been so
weakened that she could not recover
and the blood poisonitig which set in
at the last caused her death. Every
thing possible was done by the family
and neighbors. Mrs. Alex. Coffman
was with her almost constantly. She
says that Mrs. O'Laughlin was con
scious a part of the time the last
twelve hours. She will be greatly
missed as a neighbor and friend. All
speak highly of her. Mr. O'Laughlin
nursed her tenderly and is greatly be
reaved by her loss.
'Mrs. O'Laughlin was born in Han
cock county, Illinois, and was 48 years
of age. When a year and a half old
she moved with her parents, Mr. and
Mrs. J. W. Warden, to Iowa. They
first settled in Green county and have
since resided at different places in the
state. Mr. Warden died six years
ago. The mother of the deceased
makes her home in Ottumwa and has
been here the past four weeks. Her
son, A. R. Hyatt, of Rome, N. Y., has

HAS NOT JURISDICTION.
Claimed Supreme Court Cannot Pass
Upon Titus Law
Des Moines, Jan. 22.—Attorney C,
A. Irwin, of Sioux City, filed an argu
ment in the Titus amendment case
with the clerk of the supreme court
yesterday. Mr. Irwin holds that the
amendment is valid and that it must
be literally cpnstrued. In regard to
its validity he takes the ground that
the court has not jurisdiction, to de
termine the sufficiency of the record
of the twenty-seventh' general assem
bly, but that according to section one
of article ten of the code the twenty
eighth general assembly is given ex
clusive authority to determine for it
self whether the proposed amendment
had passed both houses of the twenty
seventh general assembly substantial
ly. This determination he holds was
essential to the valid action of the
twenty-eighth general assembly and
Siiich determination was judicial in its
character and conclusive. The twen
ty-eighth general assembly specifical
ly found the amendment had been
adopted by the preceding assembly.
Unless it four.d affirmatively that it
had been adopted it had no authority
to procede.
Oral arguments in the case will be
made Wednesday. A. B. Cummins, M.
W. Bailey £nd S. W Brookhart will
present arguments. Written arguments
will be filed by Milton Remley and by
Judge C. Cole towprrow,
